Hi Simon/Glenn, 


1 - How do I have to proceed for the Surrogate Pair 
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-1969>  issue patch? I have updated 
the code accordingly to your comments, I have created the wiki here:  
https://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/SurrogatePairs. Who is supposed to 
review and merge the code? 


I want 2 to 3 PMC reviews before we proceed. I hope to be one of them.



2 - When I first submitted the patch Simon gave me lot of comments based on 
tests that he runs locally and that cannot be included into the ApacheFOP repo 
because of fonts license. Do you think that I could create an unofficial GitHub 
repo with such tests, so that in future it will be easier to test changes to 


No, that won't work. We need tests that work with resources we can include in 
distribution based on Apache License 2.0. In the past, I have created font data 
using the ttx tool (and format) used with the Adobe Font Development Kit for 
Opentype (ADFKO). You can find some of these at [1].




I coded a ttx reader here [2] which I used in complex script related tests.
